Covid-19 Update: We’re working closely with our camp nurses, following American Camp Association guidance, and closely monitoring the emerging data from camps that operated last summer to inform our policies and procedures for summer camp in 2021. Each week of camp will have a reduced total capacity as well as reduced group sizes. Groups will keep separate from other groups, meals will be primarily outdoors, and there will be health checks and other safety measures in place.
We know that things will continue to evolve and change in the months before summer, and we’re committed to staying in good communication with you all as things develop and finalize. Sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the page to receive regular check-ins about the plans and progress we’re making towards summer and what you and your family can expect.
Wonder and adventure await! Through Camp Stevens’s unique Adventure Group model, which offers a dynamic schedule, dozens of activity options, a 1:3 staff to camper ratio, and unparalleled access to nature (and away from screens!), no week at Camp Stevens is ever the same — and we love it that way! Whether playing a lawn game, on a sunset hike, or taking a shot at archery, every moment is an intentional opportunity to make friends, develop self-esteem and confidence, and safely experience the outdoors. Check out the daily schedule and sample menus, and be in touch with any questions about the one-of-a-kind Camp Stevens summer camp experience.

Due to Covid-19, we will not be offering Mini Camp, International Odyssey, or Wilderness Adventures for Summer 2021. Additionally, we are asking that families drive their campers to camp whenever possible to minimize the number of campers on the bus and save room for families unable to self-transport. Bus service is from both San Diego and Los Angeles areas, to and from Camp Stevens.
Note: Adventure Sessions are six days with pickup on Friday.
Camp Stevens offers a tiered pricing structure, allowing families to choose the price which best meets their budget. Camp fees are confidential and each camper receives exactly the same, stellar experience regardless of price paid. Rates for Adventure Sessions 1, 2, 3, and 4:
- Price A: $755
- Price B: $680
- Price C: $605
Additional discounts are available for families sending more than one camper. Camperships – scholarships to camp – are available to families with additional need.
If applying for a campership, please register your camper first and make the minimum deposit to hold your campers space. Once registration is submitted, fill out the campership application form below, and submit the application to our registrar at email@example.com.
If you need a hard copy registration packet or campership form please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The hard copies are ONLY to be used for summer camp registrations for camper families without access to the internet or a computer. Submitting a hard copy form does not guarantee your registration, as it must be received and input by the Camp Stevens office staff manually. For this reason, we encourage ALL families to register their campers through our online registration portal. If there are questions, please feel welcome to contact our office at (760) 765-0028.
Counselor Training & Info for Returning Counselors
Please note: Due to Covid-19 staff and counselors will be required to make risk management plans prior to camp and minimize their trips off of camp once on site. Risk management plans may include minimizing exposure to others, quarantine, testing, and/or vaccination prior to coming to camp. Masking, social distancing, handwashing, minimizing time indoors, and regular symptom checks will all be part of daily life at camp. We are committed to keeping our campers, counselors, and staff safe throughout the summer by actively following our Covid-19 protocols and need all staff to be 100% on board with this effort before considering applying for this summer.
